Handbook primarily designed to raise standards and intended for students and those working in archaeological illustration; it serves as a showpiece of the work of several illustrators, working in different ways. Drawings of objects made from different materials are shown at their original drawn size as well as at their subsequent, reduced, published scale, so that the techniques used by the draftsman can be clearly seen. Objects are described and the illustrators then describe their different drawing methods and approaches, giving step-by-step guides to how the illustrations were put together. Contributions include
